Govind Development, Ranked the Fastest Growing Engineering Firm in America, Selects Deltek to Manage its Business.

HERNDON, VA – July 9th, 2014 –  Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms and government contractors, announced that Govind Development, LLC (Govind) – recently named the fastest growing engineering firm in the country in the 2013 Inc. 500 rankings – has selected Deltek Vision to manage its business. The engineering firm will rely on Deltek as the financial, HR, and project management foundation to help power its continued growth.

 

After doubling the size of its workforce, Govind knew it could no longer run multiple, disparate systems for timesheets, reporting, employee data, and payroll – with no single view of the firm’s performance. It began a search for an integrated ERP solution to streamline its financial/HR management processes and provide easy access to the data needed to run its business efficiently. It also required project and resource management capabilities to ensure the right people are on the right projects, at the right time. After a thorough review of other systems including SAP, Govind ultimately selected Deltek Vision, designed specifically for architecture and engineering firms.

 

“Deltek Vision was an easy choice for Govind – it has all the capabilities we needed to work smarter as an organization so we could focus our efforts on delivering for our customers,” said Natesh Kumar, CFO at Govind. “Deltek inherently understands our business better than any other ERP provider that we evaluated. Vision is a scalable solution that delivers live reporting on employee utilization and the necessary tools we need for project profitability. We are excited to take advantage of the benefits of this solution and will rely on Deltek to build the financial and HR management foundation that will help drive our growth.”

 

“Govind was recently named the fastest-growing engineering firm in the United States by the Inc. 500 which is a huge accomplishment for a five year old firm, and we are thrilled that Govind selected Deltek to support its long-term business strategy,” said Claus Thorsgaard, Executive VP and General Manager of Professional Services at Deltek. “Deltek Vision was specifically designed to support the complete project lifecycle of A&E firms like Govind and offers a full range of capabilities from pipeline building and client management all the way to financial management and project execution. Vision is used by over 4,500 leading A&E firms, and we are pleased to add such a high profile customer to our global network of architecture and engineering firms.”

August 2014, Silversoft is proud to announce that it has achieved a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Level 1 Contribution Status – the highest BEE achievable status – at the end of August 2014, for the second consecutive year.

“We are delighted with this achievement! Our team has worked very hard to keep our rating, and naturally we are very proud of receiving a Level 1 Contribution Status for the 2014/2015 assessment period. The certification demonstrates our commitment not only to operational excellence, but to remain an active & enthusiastic contributor to the future of the South African economy,” says, Jacques du Buisson, Managing Director. He continues, “There are many misconceptions to the Charter and how it is structured. For an SME of our size, we were able to invest in social and enterprise development initiatives on the grass-roots level that allow us to be actively involved in the community as well as support local entrepreneurial talent.”

Silversoft is also a QSE (Q), which in combination with the level 1 B-BBEE rating, offers its clients a spend recognition of R 3,88 to the Rand. “At this level, our clients are able to recognize their spend with our firm as a significant part of their own B-BBEE verification process and this will assist us to remain highly competitive in the local market,” says Clair Moodaley, Silversoft’s Financial and Operations Manager.

Headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa, with more than 100 employees in offices in several African countries and in the UK, RisCura offers independent advice, analysis and reporting for asset owners, investment managers, hedge funds, private equity firms and brokers. As a highly client-centric firm, RisCura was looking for an integrated ERP and CRM solution to improve performance through more efficient processes, to deliver insight and enhanced reporting into key metrics, and to ensure tight financial integration.

After an in-depth evaluation process, it soon became clear Deltek and its local partner Silversoft could meet or exceed RisCura’s requirements, including RisCura’s unique CRM needs. Deltek will enable RisCura to move away from working in disparate systems and will support the entire project flow from CRM and project control, to financial management in a single integrated ERP solution. RisCura will also use Deltek Vision’s highly configurable platform to create and manage its own user-designed forms and fields which will support industry-specific information collection and management requirements.

“After a thorough selection process that included other major business ERP software brands, it was not hard for us to choose Deltek as they stood out as true experts in the professional services field with people who displayed an impressive knowledge of what it takes to run a project- and people-based business. In addition, Deltek Vision completely caters to our unique business processes, delivering timely management information directly from the system, and ensuring we can fully integrate our CRM with project planning and accounting.

“Deltek Vision is purpose-built for professional services firms like RisCura, delivering the capabilities it requires to manage the complete project and client lifecycle. We see a trend in the industry where financial services firms are moving towards project-focused business processes as fee-based work is increasing relative to commission-based work. This trend makes Deltek Vision a very compelling solution for financial services firms like RisCura because it supports the company’s complex CRM and financial management processes and delivers easy access to critical information,” said Claus Thorsgaard, Deltek’s Executive VP and General Manager – Professional Services.

DELTEK LAUNCHES KONA BUSINESS

Deltek’s social collaboration platform empowers businesses to better communicate, collaborate and get things done together.

HERNDON, Va. – July 18, 2013 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms and government contractors, today announced the general availability of Kona Business, the premium version of the company’s cloud-based social collaboration and productivity platform that empowers project-based organizations and their teams to collaborate and work better together.

For 30 years, Deltek has been laser-focused on helping project-based businesses achieve higher levels of business performance. Deltek understands the challenges of delivering successful projects and has identified poor collaboration and misaligned teams as one of the primary inhibitors to successful project delivery. To solve this problem, Deltek harnessed the connectivity power of social media to create Kona, a social platform that allows all key departments within an organization to stay aligned – including the all-important project management teams – to drive profitable outcomes for the business.

From colleagues to customers to sub-contractors to partners, Kona Business uniquely connects the dots between people, processes and technology through easy to use conversation spaces, task lists, common calendars, and file-sharing. With Kona in place, conversations, key deliverables, important documents, and major milestones are all collected and unified in context so teams can identify issues, solve problems, and keep everyone up to date on the status of deadlines and deliverables. Delivered through a secure cloud-based architecture, Kona Business offers organizations both a project/task management platform and a social networking solution to drive alignment across key activities and projects.

While Kona Business is a game-changing solution on its own, it is also connected to Deltek’s enterprise solutions helping to expose critical information, plans, and status updates from Deltek’s applications in an easily viewable way. With information exposed quickly and easily, collective decisions can be made faster and better across the organization. Kona Business complements Deltek’s solutions for business development, finance, project management, IT and other departments.

“We’re witnessing a true evolution in how business gets done that is all about making better, faster, and smarter decisions. To do this effectively, the right information needs to be shared quickly and effectively with the right teams on a daily basis so they can work better together, and social technologies are the conduit to make that happen. With this evolution in mind, we developed Kona, a social platform that is all about sharing information efficiently and collaborating effectively to make smart decisions,” said Mike Corkery, CEO of Deltek. “When you use Kona – and tie it to Deltek’s market-leading enterprise applications – companies are empowered with the information they need to make good decisions.

This combination is especially powerful for project-based companies because projects teams need to communicate and collaborate effectively to deliver what the customer wants.” “Kona Business is becoming our primary communication tool for all internal and external collaboration for our project management teams, our finance teams and more,” said Cindy Cates, Vice President of Finance at EDI Ltd. “The biggest difference between Kona and other tools I’ve used in the past is that I can see the status of important milestones and activities without having to ask. In just finance alone, our month-end process has gone much more smoothly because I don’t need to instant message or call people to ask for status updates.”

“Kona has become one of my company’s most valuable applications for managing multi-million dollar processes and solutions with countless partners on a daily basis – whether we’re at our desks or on-the-go,” said Joshua Larson, Marketing & Proposal Manager at Mele Associates – a leading government contractor.
